Collagen is the most important scleroprotein in the bodies of humans and animals. It consists of polypeptide chains folded into a triple-helical conformation, ensuring cohesion, elasticity, and regeneration of all our connective tissue.
Collagen hold us together. It makes up to 30% of the protein in the body, and up to 70% of the protein in the skin.
Scientific studies have identified at least 28 different types of collagen throughout the body, with the most abundant being type I, II, and III.
The most common types of collagen are:

MegaRadiant's Collagen Peptides: Type I and III.
Collagen Peptides are a versatile source of protein. Commercially it is produced by the "hydrolysis" of the native collagen. Therefore, it contains the same amino acids as the native collagen, found in skin, nails, hair, bones, cartilage, and joints.
MegaRadiant's Collagen Peptides are great for mixing with your preferred beverages, either hot or cold. It easily dissolves in seconds. It is neutral in taste and odor.
MegaRadiant's Collagen Peptides are PREMIUM quality products, and we stand behind our products.
Collagen Peptides helps promote healthy hair, skin, nails, joints and bones.
MegaRadiant's Collagen Peptides are produced from bovine hides from South America (Brazil). Predominantly grass-fed and pasture-raised.
MegaRadiant's Collagen Peptides are made from "controlled" hydrolysis of the native collagen available in beef hides. Initially beef hides are washed and cleaned in order to prepare the "extraction" of the collagen chain. The cleaning process involves the use of alkaline and/or acid conditions in order to facilitate the cleavage of the collagen chains.
Once the preparation stage is finalized, the hides are then literally "melted" in hot water at controlled temperatures to optimize the quality of product.
In order to arrive at our final product, several other steps take place, including controlled hydrolysis to optimize the characteristics and quality of our Collagen Peptides.
The final steps of the process include purification (different degrees of filtration), concentration (by evaporation), pasteurization, and drying.
Each step of the process is controlled in order to optimize the quality of our products. This process insures PREMIUM QUALITY.
